Pūjā Nights

Pūjā Nights

One Saturday most months. 7pm – 8:30pm

A pūjā is a traditional Buddhist ritual that includes chanting, offerings, readings, poetry, meditation, and the opportunity to bow our heads and fold our hands before our highest of ideals.

All are welcome whether or not you have taken part in pūjā before. Pūjā is better with a good number, so come along and lend your voice!

Pūjā nights are now happening in person again, but due to COVID restrictions, masks are required and proof of vaccination status will need to be shown on arrival.

Programme

Saturday 18 December: Dhammapada Pūjā

Enjoy some stillness and gratitude at this busy time of year! This full moon, we will be dedicating a puja to the Buddha Shakyamuni with a compilation of verses from the Dhammapada. Led by Nagasuri.
